probably not, but think i may have had an implantation bleed. when should i do a pg test? i've not had a period yet since dc1 born as still bfing.

symptoms: increased cm the last week. Big spot on chin. very very grumpy and tired. bit down. also felt v sick but think had tummy bug - better now. then today and yesterday two eps of light pinkish blood in cm but nothing more. Could just be af back but doesn't usually start like this. imp bleed was bit like this last time iirc.

only other time i've had similar it was a polyp! fingers crossed not that!...

mustn't get too excited...

Hey there smile I am in a similar boat in that I am hoping for another but am still BF and haven't had an AF yet so who knows what's happening. I've noticed some of the symptoms you've mentioned but thought it might be a change in hormones. The only way you are going to know is to test. Fingers crossed! smile

Exciting!! I keep seeing bumps everywhere and miss my bump (though I adore my little boy!)

Tested today - negative. Disappointed but also bit concerned what my small bleed could have been. Might start new thread and pop to doc tomorrow.

Ah well, hopefully another time soon.

Hi, namechanged for this cos don't want RL friends getting excited! hope you don't mind me joining?

Still BF 9 month DD, first AF since birth was 20th June, nothing since (is that 37/38 days?) feeling sick and heightened sense smell for a week, mild tummy ache. also, have been using withdrawal method blush for occasional you-know-what!!

BUT have done pg test and is neg. What does anyone else think? should we all go to the doctor's for a blood test?

Hmm, like you i've been wondering if my negative was false, test too early etc, but docs always say the preg tests are as reliable as anything they can do. maybe try again in a few days?
